Went there for our anniversary, had the buffet which was good. Service, however was really subpar. Server spilled milk on the table and floor and didn’t clean it up, we had to clean the table. She never refilled water unless asked to, and then I had to ask for a clean cup even though she saw the cup was dirty (I accidentally put coffee in the water cup). All the while, the floor still had the milk that was not cleaned up. Not what I expect from a well established restaurant located in the Omni.

Everyone was amazing! Though the young lady that sat us and took our drink order checked on us more times than I can count. She went above and beyond and we greatly appreciated all that she did. However everyone was very respectful.

Service was horrible. There weren’t many tables occupied so there was no excuse for poor service or no explanation for it either. Waiter sat us, took drink orders, disappeared for 15 mins Before we saw face again. Someone else brought our food 30 mins after that. Then we saw our waiter 30 mins later to give us our bill. We had 3 toddlers, asked that the hot dogs they ordered came out ASAP . It doesn’t take 45 mins to cook hot dogs when’s there’s only 15 customers in the place . Maybe that was the first mistake.

Food was wonderful! Steak was cooked perfectly and the skirt steak dinner my husband had was unbelievable!! Bread pudding to die for!! Service was slow but it was nice we didn't feel rushed, just plan accordingly. The ambiance was so lovely; we sat next to the fireplace. Will go back again. Very friendly server.

The atmosphere was very romantic for a nice Valentines Day date or any date night. We had the chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. Both we absolutely delicious. The only downfall was it took almost 40 minutes for us to get our food. We will come back and try it again.

We had reservations for 6 PM and our play started at 7:30. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told the kitchen was backed up by 30 minutes. We felt a bit of a panic but shared our concerns with our server who said she would make our dinner happen. She did and we had plenty of time to eat our meal and get to the theatre. We ordered Shrimp and Grits and Waygu chicken fried steak. Both were delicious. We opted out of appetizers and dessert because of the time. The restaurant was a combination of groups of friends as well as families with young children. There was a gymnastics tournament next door and most of the competitors must have been staying at the hotel. The staff did a great job in spite of the kitchen back up.

Table service was horrible. We totally ignored. I had to get up 3 times to tell our banquet service we needed water and coffee. When they brought out the coffee it was cold. For $68 a person plus 20% service charge, I expected service. Ruined our Christmas brunch...

We attended the Christmas Day brunch. We enjoyed our service and that there were options for Christmas Day that didn't involve us cooking or hosting. This was an adequate, average brunch buffet. It wasn't a bad meal at all; just not worth the price that we paid in terms of brunch at that price point. We imagine the price is due to location in the Omni and that it's Christmas Day; we get it. :)

I love eating and I love dining out, and while I have experienced a wide variety of styles, ethnicities and price ranges of food, the one thing I care about is quality. I'm an open-minded and empathetic diner but simply put: this was far and away the worst meal I have ever had. The waitress didn't know a single drink ordered at our table despite us ordering from the menu; three times brought us the wrong wine (I ordered cabernet sauvignon and she brought sauvignon blanc); the manager had to come over multiple times because the wait staff didn't remember or understand parts of our order; and there was very inconsistent timing (it took one of us 45 minutes to get a glass of wine between ordering and sitting down).

But I can forgive those things - it was Thanksgiving, I get it, maybe not the most experienced staff is working. They wanted to be with their families or there were language barriers. Fine. They weren't rude, just confused. But the food was god awful.

My plate was genuinely frigid to the touch - there were beads of condensation coming off of it. There was a piece of plastic wrap on one of our plates - clearly, these were leftovers from the Thanksgiving brunch that they had packed away hours before, wrapped and put in the fridge, then just pulled out for us. And even if it had been fresh, there was genuinely no flavor. The stuffing hurt my throat it was so salty. This might make me seem like a prima donna but truly, I have pretty low standards for food and can generally find something positive in any experience. This was not even in the slightest redeemable. Plus, when we got the bill, a bottle of wine the manager had comped (because we didn't even order it ever...) was on the bill full price and it took two managers to help fix it. And it was even still a nearly $400 bill for food that was largely untouched.

Maybe it's better other days, but neither me nor anyone I know will return.

We went for the Thanksgiving Brunch. We were seated at a table but lost our table when we went to the buffet. This happened to another couple at table by us. I had to fill my wife's tea glass twice as the waiter never checked on us or took away any used plates. We we also received a bill with a 50% gratuity on it, which they changed to 20% when I stated that it was too much. Twenty percent was too much for the service we received, but it was Thanksgiving.
The food was good, but the overall value was not worth it.

Nice menu for drinks.

We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary here. We were given a special table by the fireplace and a free ceviche and dessert. We both thought our meal was the best we’d had in awhile. My husband had the Wagyu chicken fried steak (he said the best one he’s ever had), and I had the redfish. We topped it off with the peach and blueberry cobbler. The most striking thing was we were the only diners in the restaurant. It may not get much press because it is a hotel restaurant, but it was great and we’ll be back.

Where to start? The decor was nice the service was good and not too terribly loud. Menu is limited but it all seemed appetizing. After that it goes downhill. My husbands chicken fried steak still had paper on the bottom with breading over it. They comped the meal but not the iced tea. That made no sense. We brought the chocolate cake home to our son and it was so bad he threw it out. Won’t be going back.

Very poor selection... the only items that were somewhat flavorful was the prime rib and chilled shrimp. Overpriced salad bar... more salad options than entreé and sides. Very disappointed... $180 for 2 adults and 2 child...laughable to think anyone thought the food served was on par with the price point. Mother's Day Brunch fail.

We went to the Cast Iron at the Omni Fort Worth for the Mother's Day Brunch. It was very disappointing. It was not at the Cast Iron but actually within Bob's Chop House-no signage, no nothing to tell us where to go. We received an email stressing the fact that we had to be on time or they would give our table away - we were on time but had to wait about 20-minutes. Finally got a table, I was holding my 1-year grandson and trying to get him situated, a 'manager' tried to hand me a glass of water and was perturbed that I couldn't take because my hands were full. The floor beneath's my Wife's chair was slippery as somebody spilled something - took three requests to have it wiped and dried up. Luckily she didn't slip. Took multiple requests to get a high chair. On the plus side the food was excellent! When it came time for the bill, took a long time to get the bill - the bill was wrong as it should have been 4 adults @ $65, 1 child @ $40 and the two little ones for free (2 1/2 years old and 1 year old). We were charged for 2 children @ $40 - I challenged the bill and it was 'corrected' however I never saw the breakdown just a credit card slip for $402. Luckily I noticed the 21% surcharge on the first bill. Still don't understand how the bill came to $402 - 4 adults $260 + 1 Child $40 + Sales tax $24.75 + gratuity $68.20 = $392.95. I guess the 1 glass of Dr. Pepper and the 2 kids orange juices were not included in the brunch - @ $65 you couldn't throw in a pop. Very disappointing. When I went to get my parking comped apparently the Omni does not have a relationship with the garage right across the street - cost me $18 to get the car out of the garage. On the overall a very disappointing experience and I'm not sure we would go back to the Cast Iron Grill. Have actually been previously on a weekend get away and thoroughly enjoyed both restaurants. Would like to hear back from the Omni but given our experience there customer satisfaction probably not a big factor. Peter U
